"Beautiful Sweden!" Top 5 Page for this destination Sweden by sim1

Sweden Travel Guide: 12,113 reviews and 30,190 photos

I am continuously working on this page as I visit new places in Sweden every day. So I hope you will enjoy the tips I've written so far! And maybe you like to come back to this page as well, to have a look at all the new tips that I've added over time.

Let me start this page with an index what you can find where:

- Things to do : Tips about places I've visited over the last years.

- Restaurant tips: An overview of some typical Swedish dishes.

- Accommodations: A 'different' overview of accommodations in Sweden. This is my top 10 of odd locations to stay at and the top 10 of dream locations.

- Off the beaten path: An overview of all the castles in Sweden I've visited so far

- Local customs: Some of the local customs I noticed while living in Sweden. Besides that a little bit about Swedish holidays and in the future a bit about the 'Right of Public Access'.

- Packing list: What's the weather like in Sweden

- General tips: A section with lots of general info about Sweden. Here you can read all about the National Parks of Sweden, the Swedish UNESCO heritage sites and last but not least an overview of Sweden in Regions.

I hope you will enjoy reading this page!
Please leave me a comment what you think about it! :-))

Please read this page in 'authors order' as I mostly write my pages not only as
separate tips, but with a story-line in it.

All the pictures on this travelpage are taken by me or by Åke (former VT-member Akeke),
unless otherwise stated.
